Ultimately, I loved the flavor of this soup. I was not, however, thrilled with the consistency. Even after I put it through the food processor, it was still pretty chunky. I would have liked a smoother consistency with the same flavor like a traditional tomato soup. I will definitely make it again and either use a blender or an emulsifier to get a better texture. One other note, I thought the alphabet pasta used to thicken the soup was a good idea, but the extra pasta at the end may have been overkill and unnecessary carbs as they kind of get lost in the thickness and dark color of the soup anyway. The kids did like the soup which is always a bonus.

This is a very tasty and simple soup that is great for a cold winter day. I served it for dinner with grilled sharp cheddar on sourdough bread with apple slices. I will make it again, but I do agree with the previous reviewer that the consistency is a bit more chunky than I had hoped for.

My family loves this soup. Three of my kids will not eat soup and they all had seconds... so much for leftovers! I have made it with and without the chicken broth and with diced and crushed tomatoes and did not noticed a difference. On the regular menu in this house!
